ABB will demonstrate the future of robotic technology on stand 4902 during National Manufacturing Week 2009.

Headlining its NMW stand will be the new IRB 4600 robot which is described as the fastest, most accurate, low-weight, medium-sized robot ever with a 20-60kg payload.

NMW will also see the Australian launch of TrueView, a vision-guided robotic system which can see and react to changes in an industrial work environment. TrueView enables ABB’s robots to precisely locate the grip points of a disoriented object within a 3D space.

ABB will also be showing: SafeMove, a software and electronics-based system that complies with international safety standards and enables operators and robots to work together without compromising safety; MultiMove which allows up to four robots to be perfectly synchronised by equipping each robot with its own drive module and share a common controller; and Remote Service, the latest technology in robot servicing, enables a robot to automatically alert a central database via wireless GPRS technology and the internet if there is an error.
